I’m writing this post from Thailand…at the Lamai Beach Muay Thai camp in Koh Samui. It is one of my favorite places to unwind and focus on physical well-being.
I’d been trying to keep up with all of my travels and impressions on this site, but after a few months—and twice as many cities—I have some catching up to do haha Hopefully I will get to that eventually, but, for now, I am reflecting on the nomadic life that I’ve had the great fortune to be living.
It is a great privilege to be able to travel the world so freely, and I am constantly humbled by the opportunities I’ve had to do so. I’ve learned that travel never really makes sense financially, but the gift of following your intuition and going on that adventure is a thrill beyond compare.
Though there are many places in the world left for me to see, I find that I am drawn back to places that have made strong impressions on me. This Muay Thai camp is a great example…I think of it when I feel that I am on the cusp of something new. It is almost like the physicality of the training helps me to focus and dig a little deeper. I am so grateful to be back here again!
As I’ve started in on my training, I’ve been reminded of another thing—I was more fit the last time I was here! Haha! Perhaps I have more muscle now, but I was more lean before so the kicks came easier. But despite that, I still train. I know that I will get better.
I share this because I think we all have a tendency to make arbitrary markers to determine when we should start something. We will do this when we get more fit…or that when we gain a little more information.
If life has taught me anything, it’s that it’s best to start where you are, use what you have, and learn as you go. Perceived failure is often the better teacher, even though the cost can be in the form of great discomfort.
So…wear that bikini! (Haha!) Invest a little in something you don’t fully understand! And plan that trip that’s been living in the back of your mind. I believe that life rewards the adventurous spirits, if only because we have the faith to believe in life. In the words of Mooji, Life takes care of life.
Namaste and love.
